A story on Page 2A of some editions Tuesday concerning a General Accounting Office report on Amtrak passenger car safety standards mistakenly reported that the Federal Railroad Administration had no comment about it. In fact, FRA Administrator Jolene Molitoris said the agency is reviewing the report and studying three years of Amtrak accident reports to determine any possible relationship between the railroad's car fleet and accidents. Amtrak has a fine safety record, she said, even though Amtrak has some older cars and a shortage of capital.

A story on Page 1A in Monday's editions misstated the liability of Amtrak and CSX Transportation for damages resulting from last week's train crash in Alabama. CSX, the freight railroad, is responsible for the cost of repairing a damaged bridge in Saraland, Ala. Amtrak indemnifies the freight railroad for damage to the passenger carrier's equipment and other liability unless the freight carrier is found to be willfully negligent, according to Amtrak.
